An impressive array of entries attracted many visitors to Bushton & Clyffe Pypard Village Hall, for the Produce Show organised by the WI. As well as admiring the many excellent exhibits, there was welcome opportunity to enjoy delicious home-made refreshments and to patronise the well-stocked produce tombola.

The show also included some amusing novelty classes, such as the Flop class for something that did not turn out as intended.

Valerie Callaway had remarkable success in this show and won six trophies: the Gale Challenge Cup for most pints overall, the Judy Smith Medal for most first places, the Les Smith Cup for entering most classes, the WI Home Economics Cup for most points in eggs, preserves and cookery; the Glenapp Trophy for most points in pot plants and flowers, and the Foxwell Goblet for photography.

Other awards were the Trotting Horse Tankard for gentleman with most points and the Ray Smith Goblet for vegetables, Brian Reynolds; the Vi Wiltshire Cup for most points in floral art classes, Annette Wightman; the Thorne Cup for child up to 6 years 11 months, Rosie Gantlett; the Clifford Shield for child aged 7-11 yrs, Sammy Trowbridge; the Jubilee Shield for young person over 11,Sophie Mille and the Kitty Pill Award for Handicraft, Madelaine Flight.

Certificates of merit were awarded to all prize winners, and there were cash prizes in the children's classes.

This enjoyable show, always a highlight of the area, attracted great interest.
